Junk Removal Cobb County
Fast, eco-friendly junk removal in Cobb County
Meet the Owners of Junk King – Cobb County
Junk hauling and removals are some of the most important, yet dismissed job opportunities in the modern-day. Almost a decade ago Harry Van Buren recognized this importance and opened the doors of Junk King North Atlanta. Since then, he and his family have been essential to the development, growth, and protection of the environment in and around the Atlanta area. Van Buren’s son, James “Jimmy” Van Buren, has taken the reins of Junk King Cobb County—with the eventual goal of taking the entire company from his father.
Jimmy has extensive experience running operations, training teams, maintaining the trucks, and recycling, meaning he is fully equipped for his current and future responsibilities. He received his Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in computer information systems from Cumberland University and has been with Junk King ever since graduating. Jimmy shares his father’s vision for the future of Junk King; a future where Junk King provides the best and easiest solution for junk removal in Georgia.
“Junk King is a Necessity,” says Senior Owner Van Buren
The choice to work with Junk King was an easy one for Harry Van Buren in 2012. Junk King’s commitment to being the greenest removal company in North America has been the goal since the beginning of the company in 2005. Now, almost two decades later, Junk King has been given that exact distinction, separating them from all other competitors. Part of this achievement goes to franchise owners like Van Buren, who have seen the necessity of junk removal for the future:
Such thoughts are shared between many of Junk King’s operation owners—although few manage to see the success that Van Buren and his family have seen. After opening Junk King North Atlanta in 2012, they’ve since gained two other locations (Cobb County is one of those), gained ten trucks, and over twenty employees. Van Buren’s view of his company’s success as due, in part, to the clients he and his son serve:
The Green of Junk King’s Signature Red
Junk King as a company is recognized today as North America’s greenest junk hauling and removal service—but that was a distinction that was earned. Van Buren became interested in franchising with Junk King after he considered the future of his children and the world. An interview conducted in 2021 reveals his thoughts at the time:
What makes Junk King, in particular, essential? One thing is their ability to remove large amounts of junk and trash quickly, making them a vital resource in times of stress and disaster; but another aspect to their essentialism comes from their environmental practices.
Junk King as a company has pledged a commitment to having at least 60% of all junk hauls being recycled, donated, reused, repurposed, or refurbished. For Van Buren, there is more than enough ability and resources to raise that percentage:
“Junk King is helping the environment. Part of our business model is that we try to recycle, repurpose, donate—70% of what we collect.”

Stuff Junk King Cobb County Takes & Stuff They Don’t
Most junk removal services have limits to what they take. An appliance? Most services beyond the weekly trash service will take it—but they don’t recycle it. A mattress? Most services beyond the weekly guys won’t even consider taking it, let alone break it down for recycling purposes.
However at Junk King Cobb County, not only will Van Buren and his crew take those items and more, they’ll take everything from electronics to entire structures from a property. Consider their stance on yard debris:
“If you go out and cut some limbs off your trees, or you get a pile of leaves, or whatever, we’ll go in there and remove it for you as part of our service, for sure. We used to do some tree trimming; we don’t do that anymore—but if you’ve got a tree down in your yard, we’ll go in and make it smaller so we can haul it away, we do that service.”
Yard debris, construction debris, appliances, large furniture, and heavy equipment are just some of the junk the Cobb County Junk King is comfortable removing. They will take almost anything—Van Buren also spoke in an interview about one of the more memorable stories about recycling in his experience:
“Recently, one of our drivers [went to this hauling job at a divorcee’s house], the husband was getting rid of the ex-wife’s stuff, and [the husband] asked our driver if they wanted the family dog—it was this nice little Pitbull. So, [our driver] ended up taking the dog. And then we got a call from [the ex-wife] saying ‘I want my dog back!”—the husband had dumped his ex’s dog!”
Living creatures aside, Junk King takes everything—or nearly everything. They cannot take materials that are hazardous or considered hazardous waste. Van Buren has said that we can think about hazardous waste as anything “you can’t dump down your toilet or down your sink…acids, gasoline, any of that kind of stuff.”
Services of Junk King Cobb County
The largest Junk King locations typically only provide one of two types of services for residential junk removal. The first option is to order a ‘full-service’ experience, where a Junk King truck and a crew of trained junk removers take care of all the heavy lifting. The second option is to order a ‘self-service’ experience, where a Junk King roll-away dumpster is delivered to the home or property over the span of multiple days. (In Atlanta, both options are also available for businesses in the form of B2B planning and programs.) Van Buren has also made his thoughts about these services clear:

E-Waste Disposal & Recycling
The average American generates about 4.4 pounds of waste every day. The United States produces about 19,000 tons of e-waste every day.
Recycling electronic waste is beneficial for the environment because it prevents toxic chemicals from leaking into the soil and water supply. Recycling also saves energy and reduces pollution by reducing the need to extract raw materials like copper, iron, aluminum, and other metals from their sources.
The process of recycling electronic waste begins with sorting through the various types of materials that make up an old TV or computer monitor to determine which materials can be reused or recycled.

Appliances are not the most environmentally friendly things to buy. When they break or even when they are no longer needed, it is best to recycle them. Recycling appliances is a great way of minimizing the amount of waste that is thrown out into the environment.
When you recycle an appliance, you are not only reducing their own footprint but also contributing to a cleaner environment for others.

Construction Debris Removal
Contractors and project managers need to be aware of everything that could possibly happen in a project. Most of the time, they can predict how it will unfold, but sometimes there are aspects that they haven’t accounted for. When assessing construction projects, it’s easy to overlook the issue of debris removal. However, not only is it important for site safety (and aesthetics), but working closely with a junk removal company can make this easy.
But there are considerations besides just the cost. Keeping this in mind can help you develop a cleanup plan that is cost-effective and environmentally-friendly.
Outsourcing the job to Junk King Cobb County does have its benefits. It will save time and effort of doing it on your own, while also being cheaper in the long run.
Homes in foreclosure often have left behind old furniture, personal effects and other belongings. This affects not only the potential buyers but also the people who have to prepare them for sale.

Commercial Scrap Metal Pick Up
It’s often difficult to get rid of old and large items, especially if they won’t conform to the bins that most businesses use for disposing of waste. Items like these usually come in the form of metal equipment that is completely useless.
Few businesses are able to recycle scrap metal. Without the right tools, it can be hard to know where to get started. Scrap metal is harder and more hazardous to recycle because it contains oil or other chemicals.
If you have metal debris around your property you should be thinking about Junk King Atlanta. We will take your junk metal away and pay to make sure it is recycled responsibly – in turn, this keeps the materials from going to a landfill and they can be used for manufacturing.
We recycle more materials than any other junk clearing company. Our scrap metal recycling service is available for any need:
- Iron, steel, copper, aluminum, and brass scrap items
- Building beams, wire, and most other metal construction debris
- Appliances, plumbing fixtures, and other office renovation debris
- Most other unwanted metal junk
Storage Facility Cleanouts
In America, we tend to have a lot of belongings compared to other nations. Because of this, there is a 40 billion dollar industry for self-storage units in the US.
As many people know from watching long-running reality TV shows, storage facility managers often deal with old tenants’ junk. The task of cleaning it all up usually falls on them as well.
There are many ways to sell storage units. One way is auctioning them off, but not everything gets sold at an auction. Self-storage facility owners have to get rid of items that aren’t sold at the auction, but they need to make sure they do this properly.
The storage units that have been abandoned by patrons need to be taken care of. The property manager will clean the units and then put them back on the market. Junk King Cobb County is the perfect solution if you need to get rid of your junk. We offer a fair price with no hidden fees and our service is as convenient as it gets – we make sure you can relax while we handle everything!
Large Trash Removal
If your trash removal company won’t pick up all types of waste, or clean your business enough, it might be time to find a different service.
Employers could pay their employees to do a completely unrelated task, but those are not cost-effective. So that’s why our bulk trash removal service can help you out.
Junk King Cobb County provides a reliable and affordable green trash removal service. We offer great rates and we specialize in heavy trash removal. This means that can do your job without risking your company’s aesthetics. We do all the work for you – so you don’t have to take items outside, and we also try to recycle as much as possible.
All of our pricing is available over the phone before we arrive so you know what to expect, and we’ll always ask for your input before proceeding. We’ll collect all of your trash during the process too, which should make things easier for you!
